6:21 pm
months and we heard let's close it let's get it done. >> reporter: this is the largest transportation project in the history of santa clara county. it's past the halfway mark and ahead of schedule. b.a.r.t. service to milpitas and berryessa is scheduled for 2017. still ahead a new northern california place to help adults with autism. >> plus some new research that shows the genetics of the conditions are more complicated than previously thought.
6:22 pm
6:23 pm
the new results of an autism study are surprising a lot of doctors tonight. contrary to what was previously believed, siblings with autism often don't share the same autism linked genes. this means the genetics of the diagnosis are a lot more complicated than
6:24 pm
doctors first thought. the genome study found about 70% of siblings with autism have little or no overlap in genes known to contribute to autism. two fairfield women have a unique idea to help adults with autism. give them work. marianne mccleary chains -- explains the plan. >> reporter: he thinks it's cool he's the inspiration for what's to be created here on this 10-acre piece of ranch. it will be named after walker. the 19th century farm will be rehabbed and eventually employ adults with autism like ben. his mom jenine envisions the concept. >> he's worked hard in his therapies and he's come to a place now where he's not sure what's here for his adult life. >> reporter: jenine and co-founder mitchell say they're
6:25 pm
worried about the increasing number of american children diagnosed on the autism-spectrum these days. it's 1 in 68. at age 22 they age out of the public education system. >> programming is so limited. it's more like a glorified baby sitting service in a lot of them but the need is so great. parents are getting panicked. what's going to happen to my child when i die? what's my child going to do when i get older? >> reporter: they say the farm is the perfect place for adults with autism to work through their different behaviors. >> they might be in the nutrition program. they might go to behavorial. they might go to education with the computers. they might go out in to the field and pick. they might process. they might go in to the commercial kitchen. >> reporter: the farm was donate today -- donated to the cause. they need more donors to get the ranch up and running hopefully in a year. they're already getting calls from parents who want to bring their adult children here. >> we're going to employ as many as will be employable.
6:26 pm
they won't have many employable skills but we'll find a place for them and give them purpose. >> reporter: ben will no doubt work here. he's already got his jobs picked out. >> drive a tractor feed the animals. >> that was marianne mccleary reporting. the group is looking for donations to help with the renovations. we've posted more information on our website kpix.com. coming up in our next half hour tricky landing. right on the water. a pilot finds himself out of gas and in a very tough spot. >> and bracing for what could be a monster snowstorm. people on the east coast get ready to hunker down and travelers across the country have no choice but to wait.

parachute that led to a water landing in the pacific. >> reporter: the pilot and plane were here yesterday. the plane was being retrofitted for a long range fuel tank. it's how the flight ended that is just amazing. coast guard video of the cirrus sr22 northeast of maui shows the propellers stall and a parachute deploy. it looks a bit unnerving with the plane's nose heading for the water, but you'll see the plane levels out. getting to this point was hours in the making. the pilot realized he was going to be out of fuel before reaching land and hours spent trying to trouble shoot left only one plan. divert to a nearby cruise ship. the plan worked as intended. and there is how the plane landed in the water. the pilot pops out deploys a raft, and waits to be rescued. he was in the water about 40 minutes when the cruise ship showed up. the pilot is 25-year-old lou morton out of
6:31 pm

6:34 pm
mother nature might bring. >> got a live look at times square tonight. you can see mostly empty streets where just a couple weeks ago they were watching the ball at midnight. people avoiding the snowy weather getting inside. the city's subways are set to close at 11 p.m. tonight local time. authorities have banned all travel on streets and highways in new york city. and on long island. the fine for heading out, $300. and no, that's not snow. that's a massive mound of salt. 5,000 tons of salt to be exact. that's in preparation for this blizzard to cover to roads in yonkers new york. >> that blizzard is having a pretty big travel impact here on the west coast. >> the domino effect of airports canceling flights has finally made its way across the country to california. sfo, 53 flights total canceled.
6:35 pm
41 were headed to the airports where the snow is bearing down tonight. 12 inbound flights from the east coast had to be canceled. the airport duty manager expects those numbers to only go up. in addition to sfo oakland airport has one cancellation they've told us about. both those flights were connected to new york's jfk. passengers at l.a.x. have been experiencing the same frustrations. one family from boston says they were just trying to get back home. >> no flights are not only going anywhere today tomorrow. we're not leaving here till wednesday at 9:50 p.m. i'm really upset. but there's nothing they can do, right? >> it's warm down in l.a. once the powerful storm hits, it could shut down the nation's busiest airport hubs completely. if you're traveling in the next couple days, make sure you check your flight before you go to the airport. the travel impact probably going to get worse than what we're seeing tonight.

6:45 pm
for cancer research. >> reporter: for the first time ever uc irvine chemistry students along with australian collaborators have succeeded in unboiling egg whites. >> what we want to do is use this to try to develop new therapies and new diagnostics against cancer using this approach. >> reporter: the egg whites were boiled in to a solid state that mimicked cancer. by then showing that these egg whites could be unboiled or returned to their original healthy state this gives hope for developing therapies to fight the disease. more than a culinary magic trick, it's big news for cancer research and treatment. uci professor greg weiss experimented with eggs because he says they're complicated mixtures of proteins similar to many anti-cancer therapies. he hopes to use the same unboiling of eggs approach in order to
6:46 pm
develop less expensive anti-cancer treatments. >> when we boil eggs, proteins get unwind and tangle together. when proteins get tangled together they're difficult to pull apart. we need ways to pull apart proteins because then we can apply those methods to producing proteins that are useful for anti-cancer purposes. >> reporter: the research has been published in a noted journal. what happens here can open doors. the university has filed for a patent on the work. we need some rain. hopefully in the next month or so. this month did not bring us anything. >> san diego l.a. >> we're not generating much of anything. doesn't look like there's much on the way for the bay area. not in the next 24 hours. not until the end of the month. we don't see anything on the way. let's just set it out
